Finally A full report can be found at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1YlhnOwNnPjsfnD_nqoUFxetbcd35jIobvBMBKD5DwSY/edit

(Yay for document sharing!) Let's start with a famous one Open Educational Resources
for Paraeducators Khan Academy
https://www.khanacademy.org/ Open Educational Resources Now let's chat a moment about what Open Educational Resources (OER) are:

digitized materials offered freely and openly for educators, students and self-learners to use and reuse for teaching, learning, and research Resource Repositories There are initiatives that combine resources from various educational entities such as Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching at http://www.merlot.org. (sample: DNA from the beginning)

Or they may aim to increase access to categories of materials as http://archive.org/ does (sample: The Boy in the Plastic Bubble) Getting an Overview A good place to start learning about Open Educational Resources (OER) is at Open eLearning Content Observatory Services, a European project which is co-funded by the EU Commission and located at http://www.olcos.org/ Educational Video There are a number of sites that are resource repositories for educational videos
TeacherTube at http://www.teachertube.com/ or
Public Broadcasting Systems PBS Learning Media at http://www.pbslearningmedia.org/ (sample: Newtons Third Law) or
Youtube Education at http://www.youtube.com/education (sample: Pi and the size of the universe) OpenCourseWare There are also many sites that offer complete courses, although these are usually at the higher education level:
MIT OCW: http://ocw.mit.edu/
Yale OCW: http://oyc.yale.edu/
Berkeley OCW: http://webcast.berkeley.edu/
OCW Consortium: http://www.ocwconsortium.org/ Educational Testing or Assessment When it comes to educational testing and assessment, Khan Academy found at https://www.khanacademy.org/ is the best I have ever seen for science and math related topics.

For writing a great one is https://www.utahwrite.com/ (but there is a cost) Reference Materials Another type of learning resource is the availability of reference materials. This includes items such as the Library of Congress website at http://www.loc.gov/ or the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) website at http://www.nasa.gov/

Examples can be found at sites such as Curriki at http://www.curriki.org/ which is specifically for K-12 resources (sample: Moon phases for elementary). Learning Objects Learning objects are generally defined as educationally useful, completely self-contained chunks of content

Connexions, as an example of a learning object repository, can be found at http://cnx.org/ and was founded by Rice University. Social Software Social software tools make it easy to interact with other people or publish and share ideas, content and links with others via the Internet. It includes Wikis, Weblogs, and content sharing Websites such as YouTube or Flickr (Open eLearning, 2007)

I presume we have all used Wikipedia, Youtube and probably Flickr but have we thought about the origins of the content? Document Sharing Document sharing sites allow you to share and collaborate online. In some cases you simply post your work and can share it publicly and obtain commentary on it.

OER Search To peruse a variety of open educational resources a good place to start may be OER Commons, an open learning network where teachers can share and assess course materials, which can be found at http://www.oercommons.org . In Conclusion Through the use of open educational resources as described here and elsewhere, K-12 educators, students and supporters can work together to improve and enhance education not only in our own institutions but worldwide. In order to use these resources, however, we must first be aware of them. They are freely available for the benefit of all.
